Splash Splash Love(2015)

Cast: Kim Seul Gi as Jang Dan Bi, Yoon Doo Joon as Lee Do (king)

Episodes: 2

Reviews: Dan Bi is a senior high school student who is also an applicant for the College Scholastic Ability Test. She  gave up studying math. On the day of the test, she  feared to go for the test and dropped into a puddle of water where she fell into time lapse and lands somewhere in Joseon era.  She landed in the pot of water where the people are doing for rain-to-fall ceremony. They ask her who she was and she said she was a high school senior but it sounds like Gosam and people wanted to kill her. Due to her knowing many things, like math, which helps in dealing the country’s problem, Lee Do made her as a helping hand. She then falls in love with Lee Do and so does Lee Do.

My Personal Review: I got attracted to this show because Dan Bi dropped into the pot of water when she time lapsed. That’s why I got interested and watched this show. I somehow knew how the plot will go because I’m sure time-lapsed things always turns out to be a romance, like Rooftop Prince, andQueen In Hyun’s Man. It’s fascinating how the subordinate’s brother know that Dan Bi is a woman. Haha. By the way, my sister was shocked that this web drama only consists of 2 episodes but I think it is just right. Not too long or too short and it was an enjoyment to watch this drama.

Orange Marmalade quotes (Korean Drama)

Even the orange peels destined for trash are something you need to make a good orange marmalade. To  not discriminate based on differences but to make room for those who say they have no use. I hope our band can come together and make music like marmalade.

I will leave my fears to be afraid exactly where they are.

If you walk by it at a fast pace, then you can’t reach the sincerity of all the creations in the world.

Just this once, I will say that I like what I like and say that I want to do what I want to do.

~Baek Ma Ri

 

I will leave them in my heart. I will not try hard to erase my fears.

The world that is reflected in your eyes is not the world I used to know.

I found out for the first time that someone could freeze time for me.

~Jung Jae Min

 

Let’s drink tomato juice together next time. I will buy.
